A Very Special Christmas Delivery...

2014 Giving Tree Delivery
JASPER Associate, Chad Bland readies a delivery truck full of gifts for local children.

JASPER picked up a box truck load of new clothing and toys from the Salvation Army in New
Albany, Indiana December 9th.

These items were received from contributors who picked a tag from a Salvation Army Angel Tree.
Each child had a bag of presents. JASPER delivered these bags to the Indiana Department of
Child Services in English, Indiana, which were distributed to the families in need. The boxes (pictured
above) had extra toys to be donated.

This, along with JASPER's annual Giving Tree program, was a great way to inspire others and
bring hope to kids in need.

JASPER Opens South Bend, Indiana, Branch

Jasper Engines and Transmissions has opened a new branch location in South Bend, Indiana.

The Branch is located at 3303 Williamson Richardson Ct, Suite 200, in South Bend.  The branch will receive four factory truck deliveries per week that will allow JASPER to increase customer service in this area.

"The territories within the South Bend branch were initially serviced by our Indianapolis, Chicago and Grand Rapids, Michigan, locations," said Kevin Powell, JASPER National Operations Manager.  "We found a need to open a branch in South Bend because it will allow us to better serve our customers in that market with more days of service, earlier deliveries and faster core pickups."

I am excited for the opportunity to offer the increased customer service, and the additional delivery days for our northern Indiana and southern Michigan Customers,” said Mike Smith, JASPER Regional Vice President.

The South Bend branch gives JASPER a total of 43 branch locations throughout the United States.
